Use Apache Spark to connect to SQL Server, extract a table from SQL Server, and load the extracted rows into a Hive table:

import os
from pyspark import SparkConf,SparkContext
from pyspark.sql import HiveContext

conf = (SparkConf()
  .setAppName("data_import")
  .set("spark.dynamicAllocation.enabled","true")
  .set("spark.shuffle.service.enabled","true"))
sc = SparkContext(conf = conf)

sqlctx = HiveContext(sc)

df = sqlctx.load(
  source="jdbc",
url="jdbc:sqlserver://ec2-54-244-44-6.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com:1433;database=sales;user=my_username;password=my_password",
dbtable="orders")


## this is how to write to an ORC file
df.write.format("orc").save("/tmp/orc_query_output")

## this is how to write to a hive table
df.write.mode('overwrite').format('orc').saveAsTable("test_table")

I am using pyspark3 on Spark 2.02 and when run the above code i get following error:

'HiveContext' object has no attribute 'load'
Traceback (most recent call last):
AttributeError: 'HiveContext' object has no attribute 'load'

I tested the above code with Spark 1.6.2. I have not tested with Spark 2.0.

I see your using Spark 2.0. Spark 2.0 uses the SparkSession which replaces both HiveContext and SQLContext. You will have to use SparkSession. See below. After creating the SparkSession, like how I do below, I don't know off hand if the following will work: 'spark.load( source="jdbc", url="jdbc:sqlserver://ec2-54-244-44-6.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com:1433;database=sales;user=my_username;password=my_password", dbtable="orders")'

from pyspark.sql import SparkSession

spark = SparkSession \

.builder \

.appName("my_application_name") \

.config("spark.shuffle.service.enabled","true") \

.config("spark.dynamicAllocation.enabled","true") \

.getOrCreate()

Hi,

I have the following error : " from pyspark import SparkConf,SparkContext ImportError: No module named 'pyspark'"

Could you please help me with this error?

Thanks

Will it work for spark version 2.3.0 ?

Could you please update it as per this version.
